The Inn at Ocean's Edge Book Review

Another great book called The Inn at Ocean's Edge written by Colleen Coble! I am on a roll today, so buckle down and be prepared to read some really great book reviews!
A vacation to Sunset Cove was her way of celebrating and thanking her parents. After all, Claire Dellamore's childhood was like a fairytale. But with the help of Luke Elwell, Claire discovers that fairytale was really an elaborate lie . . . 
The minute she steps inside the grand Inn at Ocean's Edge, Claire Dellamare knows something terrible happened there. She feels it in her bones. Her ensuing panic attack causes a scene, upsetting her parents. Claire attempts to quiet her nerves with a walk on the beach, to no avail. She's at too great a distance to make out details, but she believes she witnesses a murder on a nearby cliff. When local police find no evidence of foul play, they quickly write off the "nervous" woman's testimony as less than credible. 
But Luke Elwell, home on leave from the Coast Guard, has reason to believe Claire. Years ago when his mother went missing, Luke's father suspected she'd been murdered. He died never having convinced the police to investigate. So when an employee of the grand hotel doesn't show up for work, Luke steps in to help Claire track down the missing woman. 
As Claire and Luke put together the pieces of a decades-old mystery, they discover that some family secrets refuse to stay buried. And some passions are worth killing for. 
My Thoughts:
One thing is for sure, Colleen Coble really knows how to tell a compelling tale that makes you want to read the whole book in one day! This one is no different and once again, this is going to be a series and luckily for me, this is Book 1 in the Sunset Cove series.
Wow, this is one big mess that the Dellamore's are in and it's all because Harry Dellamore had an affair years ago and both his wife and his mistress had babies at the time, only the mistress ended up having twins. Something goes wrong with his wife's delivery and the baby dies. 
What Harry does next will affect everyone from that moment on. It takes decades for it to come back full circle, but what a doozy it is! You definitely don't want to miss reading this bombshell of a book!
It seems like family is always the ones that hurt you the most and in this book, it means more than one way. Even her Uncle Paul is up to something.
Happy Reading!
